Rob Curling has been a regular presence on British Television for over 25 years. He was the on-course announcer at the London 2012 Olympic games and presented for the rowing regatta at Eton Dorney.
A BBC stalwart, Rob anchored the ‘red button’ coverage for virtually every major sporting event, and fronted numerous documentaries and outside broadcasts, including the 50th Anniversary series marking the end of WWII, The Boat Show, Railwatch, airshows and a music series for BBC Education, for whom he also presented an award-winning current affairs series. He hosted all 9 series of BBC1’s popular quiz show Turnabout (1990-96), and presented the BBC’s regional news programmes London Plus and Newsroom South East (1987-2000).
Rob hosts conferences and awards ceremonies for a vast array of companies across a whole raft of industries, including sport, leisure, health, IT, aviation, brewing, broadcasting, construction, financial and automotive. In addition to conference hosting, Rob is also an experienced after dinner speaker.
In his after-dinner speeches, Rob peels back the underlay from the magic carpet of television. He reveals some of the horror stories of presenting live news and sports programmes, many from his own bitter personal experience. He takes you behind the scenes of The London Olympics, and talks of his time on Beadle’s About when he nearly gave the game away whilst filming The World’s Best Ever Hidden Camera Stunt.
The Scania Young European Driver of the Year Final was the culmination of an intensive period of promotional activity. It was important that we conveyed the intensity of the competition to the invited audience. Rob generated fantastic energy and enthusiasm as well as total involvement in presenting the competition – without doubt Rob’s dedication to the task was first class. I would have no hesitation in recommending Rob or indeed using him again at any corporate Scania activity. Rob was a perfect ambassador for Scania.
